Planet Green’s The Fabulous Beekman Boys is not the stereotypical “look at the embarrassing city gays flail about as they try to hold down a rustic farm” television program many assumed it would be. This is a show with bloodshed!
On this week’s episode Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, whose business plan includes making soap and cheese and hoping Martha Stewart likes it, said goodbye to their pair of beloved pigs, Porky and Bess. They were raised to be killed (sorry, “harvested”) but that doesn’t mean the farm boys are any less sad about seeing them go.
Well, until they find out how many pounds of bacon they’re sitting on.
